Well after 2 days of trying and reading many posts and trying everything I know, success. Someone on here suggested formatting the memory card in the bird instead of using the computer. Really couldn't imagine how this would make a difference but what the hell, give it a try. Well it worked, formatted the card in the bird, put in computer ( windows ) and it worked. So for any of you having a problem updating give it a try. Thanks to all that tried to help. Again thanks.
